Snapseed broke records as one of the best photo editing apps out there; Adobe Lightroom wasn’t so far behind. But these free apps had their fair share of limitations that could only be utilized after a series of purchases were made. Afterlight 2 is a paid editing app as well with the same editing caliber as the aforementioned. But instead of multiple subscriptions or hidden fees, you’ll need to buy the app just one time. Discover how you can transform your photos into aesthetic, Instagrammable masterpieces with the Afterlight 2 app here on our app review.
The predecessor of Afterlight 2, Afterlight, also came out initially as a paid app. It received tremendous feedback so the developers are back with the second edition which also delivers a complete package and an updated editing potential. Afterlight 2 is the kind of photo editor you need to make your photos look professionally aesthetic and similar to those you see on a celebrity Instagrammer’s profile. It offers a multitude of powerful and intuitive editing tools to fine tune your images and add a pop of color to them.
These advanced editing tools include those that you can use to change the color curces, add selection hue, and play around with the saturation. You can also change the warmth tone of your pictures with Afterlight 2 to bring out the true colors of your images. But these advanced tools are pretty common in even free app nowadays. So what makes Afterlight 2 make a mark? We believe it is probably the artwork and text that you can add. If you’ve ever wondered how artsy Instagrammers create images with the colors and effects of a galaxy, Afterlight 2 can give you the solution conveniently. With this all-rounder photo editing app, users can add gorgeous overlays to their photos. This is a relatively new tool and one that is quickly becoming a fan favorite. With this tool, you can add in dusk and light leak overlays to your photos or throw in prism effects, rotate and expand your images to give them a boost of style.
You can also go one step further in making your photos aesthetic by adding pre-made artwork to your photos. Alternatively, you can also create your own artwork and fonts with customizable tools like drop shadows, unlimited color options, masking and layering to make your images truly professional looking.
Afterlight 2 also has a modified built-in camera that you can use to capture images directly on the app without having to select a photo from your gallery. This camera allows users to directly change the color contrast, white balance and focus of the photo you’re about to take. The camera feature, however, is reported to lag at times and takes time to load.
As with most other photo editing apps, both free and paid, you can also add in your favorite filters to your pictures. The filter library in Afterlight 2 is quite impressive and something you can actually make use of. These high quality filters don’t ruin the image quality and add in a nice touch of color to your photos.
Other convenient features Afterlight 2 facilitates is high quality zooming, a history button to redo your edits and double exposure to blend in two photos together.
